For a plum tree to recover,For a plum tree to recover, it needs almost all of its root system. It must be replanted when dormant in a mixture of soil and compost and also planted at a depth that is the same as its original site. You might wish to stake the tree since it's bound to have lost some of its anchoring roots. Use padded ties ands takes at a low height. Most plum trees do not need fertilization. Put organic mulch (pine needles) around the base after transplanting to keep weeds and grass away. Give it a gentle soaking daily for a couple of weeks to keep it watered and help the soil settle. Spray with dormant oil early next spring before leaf-out. It may take a few years to stabilize.
